The Zero Waste Bootcamp – the flagship community outreach programme by Secondsguru – has been steadily widening its impact since its inception in 2019. And starting 2020, we have ensured that the work by youth volunteers continues to inspire via the Travelling Exhibition.
The Travelling Exhibition is a poster exhibition which showcases youth projects with a dual goal of environmental and social sustainability executed under the 12-week Zero Waste Bootcamp. After the wrap up of each bootcamp, the journey of each team – including impact and achievements – is converted into an artistic poster and exhibited at various public spaces in Singapore.
Why an Art Exhibition?
1. Each project was crafted and executed carefully by the respective team as deftly as an artist creates a piece of art.
2. Sharing real examples by real people is an impactful way to get more to join the environment and social sustainability movements.
Individual teams and projects highlighted in the ZWB Travelling Exhibition can be found here:
Between May 2021 to September 2022, the exhibition has ‘travelled’ to 10 venues, including 6 different public libraries, as well as 2 public spaces: NUS Central Library and Science Centre. The exhibition is currently hosted at Choa Chu Kang Public Library and will travel to the Sustainable Singapore Gallery from November till the end of 2022. The ZWB Travelling Exhibition will continue to make its rounds across more public libraries and community spaces in the time to come.
The Zero Waste Bootcamp Journey!
Since 2019, Secondsguru has conducted 7 Zero Waste Bootcamps thus far. Our cohorts have included working professionals as well as college students. In all, 150+ participants have joined the past 7 bootcamps, having organised 45+ community events and forged 60+ collaborations with a range of partners, sparking a cascading impact as they reached out to more than 150,000 individuals through online and in-person outreach! A broad scope of zero waste issues have been addressed in previous iterations of the ZWB, ranging from food waste to over-consumption of disposables to unsustainable fashion and so forth.
The biannual bootcamps will run till 2023. To sign up for the next bootcamp, complete this registration of interest form.
